    The one issue I have about the Hatchery or any other suggestively named cities is that it will likely come up as #5 city in the world. If it has a name like that, the other teams will likely infer that our third city is our worker pump.

    The Chick Magnet resurgency! :D :rolleyes:

    I don't know if it would give them any signifigant advantage to know that we have a worker pump. But maybe that's my lack of experience in multiplayer speaking. Do any of you guys also have a problem with them (possibly) knowing of our worker pump?

    Do you really think that they would guess that? It took me a while to explain back on page 2... *meh* If not, then what should we call the city in your opinion?

    No, that was there to make the post five characters. I do like Aquila, or even something more abstract like "The Nest".

    I don't know if these translate very well, but since the name must be vague and confusing, how about:
    • Nanny-nanny-boo-boo
    • This Space Left Blank
    • The Undecided
    • 5th Best City
    • Packers 31 Steelers 25

    The Hatchery does remind me of the Council. Hmmm. :devil:

    I'm confused as to why this relates to "Sparth"... :confused:

    Sparth is an Anglo Saxon name for an axe. If you go to this wikipedia article, it tells how the Romans used a version of the "sparth" called a winged spear.

    I thought it was kinda cool. I originally thought about The Age of the winged spear, but that's a little too long.

    The only problem I have posting is when I hit the "GO" Forum Jump button instead of the "Post Quick Reply" button by mistake. It's a Bozo move I thought I only did. :D

    If everybody does agree I will call our FP city " The Hatchery". After that I will pick names from the lists above.
